By this model number the 060 stands for 60,000 btu's and that converts to 5 TON..

### How many tons is a rudd model ubhc-14j06sfd?

I believe the "06" in the model number has been reversed. It should read UBHC-14J60SFD. This would make this unit a 5 ton unit. I hope this helps:) Have a great day!

### I am trying to replace my old bryant heat pump with a new bryant heat pump, but I am having a difficult time figuring out the tonage. Can you tell me if I have the model number?

fyi if the model number has for example 373036 373042 373048
the o and number after it usually is the btu value...
12000 btu's = 1 ton so a 036 would be a 3 ton 042 3 1/2 060 would be a 5 ton
post the number someone will help you out... another way to find out
a number for ft. worth location is 817-834-4496 good luck to you

### Need to know how many tons this AC unit is

To find out the tonnage, I would need to see the model number. If you can go to the out door unit and write down the number or look for this in the numbers and letters. There are 12,000 btu's per ton of cooling. I don't know if you have a central unit or a window unit, but look for numbers like this. 018, is a 11/2 ton, 024 a 2 ton, 030 a 21/2 ton, 036 a 3 ton, 042 a 31/2 ton, 048, a 4 ton, they don't make a 41/2 ton, and it go's to 060 a 5 ton. This is the largest for a residential that is made. From there they make units for commercial buildings that start at 71/2 tons up to 350 ton's on 10,000' warehouses for wine storage and so on. This is larger then a train box car. You may want to write this down and keep it as most people have no idea how to tell, and now you do. Please don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind. Let me know if you need my help for any thing.

### Does not seem to be sufficient cool for a 1600 sq ft manufactured home coming from the Coleman unit installed. Some vents more air, others less air. Unit runs without stopping ever. Can you give us some...

Hi John, depending on the size, I would need the model number from the outdoor unit if it is a split system, you should have 400 cfm per ton of cooling. If you have a 1600 SQ' home, and a 3 ton unit, 3 x 400 cfm is 1200. It would be to small. There are 12,000 B. T. U.'s of cooling per ton. 2 tons would be 24,000 b t u's. 3 tons would be 36, 000 b.t.u.'s. Also, most contractors put lever dampers in the duct work that can be adjusted. They will put a red flag where the lever is and we can adjust the flow to balance out the house. I don't know where your ducts are, under or above, but with a good light find the crawl space and check it out. Get the model number and call it in to get the tonnage or send it to me and I will tell you. It will have a 024, 030, 036, 042, or, 060 in the number, MODEL number and figure like I told you above, 12,000 per ton. 060 would be a 5 ton. This will let you know if the unit is the right size or not. Please rate me on this and I know you will be kind. Thank you John.

### Need info for RUDD upflow oil furnaces

Contact your nearest Ruud DISTRIBUTOR, usually The Noland Company, and ask them if they could go into the historical documents and print out or send you the files for the wiring, spec's and parts breakdown. From the model number, that unit is rated for 3 tons of a/c. You can find a 3 ton coil that will fit in the space and get a straight cool condenser of 3 tons cooling and swap thermostats so it brings on the furnace and fan in heat and the condenser and fan in cooling. Or just add a simple White - Rogers model 444 for the cooling. Ron
